Recently, a homeless man found a backpack filled with thousands of dollars in cash and traveler’s checks. Did he keep it? No, he turned it in to police in Boston, saying that even if he were desperate he wouldn’t have kept it.
His name is Glen James and he was honored by Boston Police Commissioner Edward Davis recently. James was given a special citation and city officials thanked him for an ‘extraordinary show of character and honesty.’
James released a statement that said he was glad to make sure the backpack and its contents were returned to the owner.
